CRITICAL PREVENTATIVE PROCEDURES

● Limiting personal interaction: Face-to-face interaction and person-to-person

contact will be limited to essential activities that cannot be performed in an

alternative fashion. When such activities are required, social distancing and other

infection-spreading mitigating measures will be emphasized. Face coverings will

be enforced when not actively exercising.

● HYGIENE : hand washing will be emphasised before, during and after all

activities when practical.

● CLEANING AND SANITATION: Routine and enhanced cleaning and

sanitation measures will be implemented.

● SAFE ACCESS TO FACILITIES : Facility entry and exit points will be

coordinated to minimize personal interaction and facilitate social distancing.

symptom screening.

Student-athletes will complete daily symptom screenings prior to arriving and

exiting their vehicle upon arrival to designated sites.

● PPE: gloves will be available to all coaches. Coaches and Student-athletes will be

required to provide masks/face coverings.

REQUIRED PROTOCOL FOR INDIVIDUALS CONFIRMED, SUSPECTED OR

EXPOSED TO COVID-19 ( From UIL updated guidelines July 8, 2020)

● Any individuals (staff, students or campus visitors) who themselves is either (a)

lab-confirmed to have COVID-19; or (b) experience the symptoms of COVID-19 (listed

below) must stay at home throughout the infection period and cannot return to campus

until the School District screens the individual to determine any of the below conditions

for campus re-entry have been met:

○ In the case of an individual who was diagnosed with COVID-19, the individual

may return to school when all three of the following criteria are met:

■ At least three days (72 hours) have passed since recovery (resolution of

fever without the use of fever-reducing medications);

■ The individual has improvement in symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of

breath); and

■ At least ten days have passed since symptoms first appeared.

○ In the case of an individual who has symptoms that could be COVID-19 and who

is not evaluated by a medical professional or tested for COVID-19, such

an individual is assumed to have COVID-19, and the individual may not return to the

campus until the individual has completed the same three-step set of criteria listed

above.

○ If the individual has symptoms that could be COVID-19 and wants to return to

school before completing the above stay at home period, the individual must

either (a) obtain a medical professional’s note clearing the individual for return

based on an alternative diagnosis or (b) receive two separate confirmations at least

24 hours aporat that they are free of COVID via acute infection tests at an

approved COVID-19 testing location found at https://tdem.texas.gov/covid-19/.

● Individuals- including students, teachers, staff, or other campus visitors - who HAVE

HAD CLOSE CONTACT WITH SOMEONE who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19,

as narrowly defined in this document and as determined by the appropriate public health

agency, should stay at home through the 14-day incubation period, and should not be

allowed on campus.

○ SWISD will screen individuals after the incubation period has concluded, and if

the individual did not experience COVID-19 symptoms during that period, the

individual can be allowed back on campus. If the individual experienced

symptoms, they must stay at home until the conditions outlined above have been

met.

● This document refers to “close contact” with an individual who is lab-confirmed to have

COVID-19. Close contact is determined by an appropriate public health agency. For

clarity, close contact is defined as:

○ being directly exposed to infectious secretions (e.g., being coughed on while not

wearing a mask or face shield); or

○ being within 6 feet for a cumulative duration of 15 minutes, while not wearing a

mask or face shield;

If either occurred at any time in the last 14 days at the same time the infected individual

was infectious.

Individuals are presumed infectious at least two days prior to symptoms onset or, in the

case of asymptomatic individuals who are lab-confirmed with COVID-19, two days prior

to the confirming lab test.

● Identifying Possible COVID-19 Cases

○ Immediately separate any student who shows COVID-19 symptoms until the

student can be picked up by a parent or guardian.

○ All areas used by the individual who shows COVID-19 symptoms will be cleaned

as soon as possible.

○ Students who report feeling feverish will be given an immediate temperature

check to determine if they are symptomatic for COVID-19.

REQUIRED ACTIONS IF INDIVIDUALS WITH LAB-CONFIRMED CASES HAVE

BEEN IN A SCHOOL OR IN AN AREA WHERE UIL ACTIVITIES ARE BEING

CONDUCTED

● If an individual who has been in a school is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19, the school

must notify its local health department, in accordance with applicable federal, state and

local laws and regulations, including confidentiality requirements of the Americans with

Disabilities Act (ADA) and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

● Schools must close off areas that are heavily used by the individual with the

lab-confirmed case (student, teacher, or staff) until the non-porous surfaces in those areas

can be disinfected, unless more than 3 days have already passed since that person was on

campus

● Consistent with school notification requirements for other communicable diseases, and

consistent with legal confidentiality requirements, schools must notify all teachers, staff,

and families of all students in a school if a lab-confirmed COVID-19 case is identified

among students, teachers or staff who participate on any, on campus activities.
